Has anyone every tried to grow jicama? How long did it take you to harvest? Any tips? What was your climate? Thanks!

I'm not sure jicama is a good choice for SFG. Each plant can get quite large and the tubers (3 or 4 per plant) would need more than 6" of soil since they can each get 5" or larger. But it looks like it would be fun to grow for those who get 6 - 9 months frost free.

Read the info on the link. Very helpful, thank you.

My boxes are 12" deep. I made them before I knew about SFG. I am replacing the top half of the soil with Mel's Mix as I go. We have a very long growing season in San Diego. I might just try it!

Go for it! If I were to try it, I'd dedicate two squares per plant and put it on a trellis. As a matter of fact, I just might try it next year myself -- it sure would be a conversational piece among my neighbours.
